too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year terms. on the domestic front, he enacted a major economic recovery package followed by an overhaul of social security. and in his second term, reagan gained a major tax reform. on the defense front, republican president reagan again with the help of the rity presided over a major increase in the defense budget, congress presided over a major increase in the defense budget, the defe including straby millions of protesters here and abroad. also commander in chief reagan gained secret aid for freedo

states will always, always, always meet its debt. we will never default on its debt. that was introduced in 2010. it didn't pass because harry reid and president obama didn't want it to pass. they wanted to raise the specter of a default to use. so, chuck, you and i could make news right now on national television, would you agree to support the full faith and credit act and take the possibility of a default off the table? >> i support the mcconnell proposal. let us raise the debt ceiling. no strings attached. and if the president can raise it as he should be able to and if congress wants to reject it 2/3. the mcconnell proposal is a good republican proposal. i hope you support it. that's the way to go. >> a bill that says regardless of what happens with the debt ceiling, the united states will never default on the debt, would you support that or not? >> i support the concept. i'd have to look at the bill. the best way to do that is the mcconnell act. >> we may have just made news. >>> last week, general colin powell was here worried about a dark vein of intolerance in republican quarter

a great weekend. >> hello. i'm congressman james lankford from the great state of oklahoma. tomorrow president obama will be sworn in for a second term. though we disagree on some terms, we want to pray for the days ahead. are the last four years, our nation has faced tough economic times. millions of americans are out of work and gas and food prices continue to rise. we have never increased spending or debt faster than we have in this period. i weiss mad -- a wise man leaves an inheritance for their children and children's children. federal spending is dragging our economy down rather than lifting our families up. it is time for democrats and republicans to work together to get our nation and families back on track. every family and every business has a budget. our nation should have a budget as well. every year, the president is required by law to submit a budget by february 4. for the fourth time in five years, they will be late to submitting a budget to your representatives. unfortunately, the president has missed more budget deadlines than any of his predecessors. aey're suppose
caucus because they have six seats up next time. >> all of those senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> so how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people are pushing back against. although it is interesting with the increased number of women in congress that it might have a better shot than 1994, 29% of republican men voted for the assault weapons ban and almost 70% of republican women. so you could see a difference because of that. but i think that background checks, waiting period, you know, the biggest gun violence is suicide. and to put in a waiting period could help with suicide. >> rick, how do you -- >> so i think you could start to see some movement on those aspects. >> how do you think republicans should play this? >> i think we should stick to our guns and, you know, george reminded me of something i said to him back in '94 when i ran for the senate in pennsylvania. he said, how
